Ashley Ortega goes back to the ice rink via Skate Philippines Summer Championships 2018. Before joining showbiz, Ashley Ortega was an ice skater and a member of the Philippine team.


Ashley Ortega was a big winner at the Skate Philippines Summer Championships 2018 last May 29.

The Kapuso star won gold medals in all three categories—Interpretative, Artistic, and Spotlight—plus a special award, Most Artistic.

Before becoming a Kapuso in 2012, Ashley was an ice skater and a member of the national team.

In her interview with 24 Oras's Aubrey Carampel, she said, "I started skating at the age of four, and then I stopped when I was 11.

"I was part of the Philippine team before, I used to compete abroad representing our country.

"And then I stopped because I started doing showbiz."

The 19-year-old beauty was happy to be back on the ice.

"It feels great," she said.

"I feel pressured, siyempre andun pa rin yung kaba. I'm nervous. Kasi I feel like hindi ko na magagawa ulit yung mga jumps and spins ko before, but I'm taking it slowly but surely."

Here's her routine for the Spotlight category:

On Instagram, she put out this gratitude post.

"Blessed. Thank you to everyone who greeted me and to those who supported me. For my wonderful costume, @daniebarondesigns thank youuu and for my @artistcenter fam who supported me."
